A very welcoming park that is well maintained. The River Kelvin meanders through the park making it even more lovely. Peace solitude. Great.

The art is spectacular and so is the building. What a treat! There is almost too much to see, so check out what interests you and go. We enjoyed a special exhibit on the Scottish Colourists. The setting of the museum is lovely.

Don't miss it! You can walk for hours in this beautiful and calm park and visiting the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is a must! Free admission, great collection - plenty to see and an insight into Scottish and international art.

There is so much to see in the park and museum, you need to set aside two days to do it! We explored the museum on a rainy day, spent three hours, and probably only explored a third of the exhibitions. Then we went back...More

A lovely and interesting museum with a wide collection of historical artifacts and pieces of art. A large pipe organ graces the entrance area and there is a short organ recital at 1:00 p.m. each day.
